A very successful and talented heavy rock band that originated in Devon. Consisting of Matthew Bellamy (vocals, guitar, piano), Dominic Howard (drums), and Christopher Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals), they joined together in 1994 at the age of sixteen, calling themselves the Rocket Baby Dolls. Their plan was to form this band for one week to take the piss in a local Battle of the Bands contest, arriving with makeup, stupid hair, the whole thing. They came to lose, expected to lose, but they won because of the attitude, and realised that's what music was all about. They decided to stick together and change their name to Muse, releasing their first EP when they were about 17 and released their first album, Showbiz, in 2000 (average age 21). As of 2007, the group has five albums, including the live Hullabalooalbum.
Muse is an eclectic band, a mixture of new prog, heavy metal, and indie rock with a mixture of opera vocals (Matt Bellamy has a strong vibrato for a rock singer) and classical piano (such as the elegant piano solo in the middle of Butterflies and Hurricanes). They site Queen, Rage Against The Machine, and Jeff Buckely as their major influences.
Muse are infamous for trashing their equipment, heavy touring, lively shows, taking the piss when they aren't aloud to play live, and having crazy laughs. Definitely pwoper wock.
